I soon realized I have a story to share about the real policing world. Police bosses, management, the recruiting process. If your interested in how to become a police officer and want to hear my perspective about the cop life, watch my episodes. I discuss the negative and positives of policing life; police recruitment process, police commissioner, police bosses, current events and my life. After 3 years of Criminology I applied to become a cop in 1995 and failed miserably. This is my book on how I became a cop and the struggles I encountered as a Police officer.
